A natural approach to control biodeterioration

, : A natural approach to control biodeterioration. Biodeterioration and Biodegradation 9 Proceedings of the 9th International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation Symposium, Leeds, UK 5-10 September 1993: 314-319

A novel approach to the control of spoilage or biodeterioration which was initially developed for toiletries and cosmetics is described. The system is an adaptation of a physiological defence mechanism found in most mammals which helps protect mucous membranes and other susceptible body parts from microbial infection.
